It is the interview that gets you the job. The resume doesn’t get you the job. The resume gets you the interview. So what are the elements of a successful interview? What are the hiring official’s goals for the interview? How do you create the right chemistry in which you can inspire the hiring official with a positive outcome? What are the common mistakes in interviewing and how to prepare your script for interviews? Is there a secret for successful interviewing? How do we consistently and effectively do it? Interviewing sounds simple, but it is far from easy. This entertaining and thought-provoking presentation will help you see the power of interviewing in getting the job you want and will show the steps necessary to foster your personal readiness for a competitive advantage. The speaker will present the essential skill set for effective interviewing and engage you for a mock interview practice. It will mainly focus on the skill set needed to create a successful interviewing.
